A successful Sunday to start a new week

Rally Day at church, for which I had made those six batches of caramel corn, turned out well. Good attendance. The weather was nice, but I did get hot by the time I had circulated with baskets of the bagged corn and visited with numerous guests. I had an egg roll made by our Vietnamese congregation and a watermelon wedge offered at the evangelism & membership table. It was now close to noon, the bags of caramel corn had all been dispensed, and my face had begun to melt, so I went home.

Being a warm Sunday (the temperature rose to 99 degrees), I sat on the couch, with air conditioner and air purifier running, and vegged out all afternoon. Journal writing, social media, library book reading. I realized, late afternoon, that I had only eaten those Rally Day treats all day so I was getting hungry. However, I wasn’t in the mood to cook much. Fortunately there was a lasagna in the freezer, spinach in the fridge, and a baguette of fresh bread. It all turned into an easy, tasty dinner, with the emphasis on easy. Then a lime popsicle for dessert while we watched a Vera episode.

It was a pleasant, successful Sunday. Good start to a new week. Another busy week. More storytelling sessions. Grocery shopping is imperative. Writing an agenda for a deacon’s meeting next Sunday. Because, you know, next Sunday will be here in a blink of the eye.

  1. I’m always amazed at how quickly the days flow by and then here we are at another new week. We’re having the exterior wood trim of the house painted today and inside, there are workers putting down a new floor in the master bathroom. Busy, busy day today.

    • And having work done on your house is anxiety-producing.

      • Too true! I realize that was part of what my stress has been about, but also the neighbor has a dog who barks non-stop and it does grate on my nerves. It makes me physically ill to complain, but sometimes I just have to. I went out earlier and shouted to the dog to shut up/stop, but it didn’t do any good. I will not miss that …

  2. And I agree that I barely get through the weekend and another one rolls around.

    • Just learned that one of my retired teacher friends has fallen & broken her leg. She lives alone & has one sister in town. Not sure how that will all play out.

  3. It sounds like you’ve had a very busy weekend, but also very pleasant, except for the heat. I’m always shocked by how much faster time seems to be flying by these days.
